Islamabad (Staff Report): Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) will not follow a policy of discrimination in any case.
“NAB will not follow a policy of discrimination. I have sought record of cases relating to Dr Asim and Sharjeel Inam Memon to ascertain if discrimination is committed at any level … at NAB,” a press statement issued by the bureau quoted its chairman as saying.
“As the acting chief justice of Pakistan, I followed a policy of ‘justice for all’. Now, NAB will follow a policy of accountability for all in letter and spirit,” the chairman reportedly told the meeting’s participants.
Earlier, PPP leaders, including Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah, expressed reservations after NAB arrested Sindh’s former information minister Sharjeel Inam Memon in a corruption reference.
“NAB has nothing to do with the issuance of non-bailable arrest warrant against Memon … He is facing a corruption reference, and NAB only followed the court’s decision,” the NAB chief clarified.
Khurshid Shah requested the NAB chief to take action on Sharjeel Memon’s arrest by NAB.
